    Only in Asia could you come up with "Happy Land" and have someone think it is a good name. :blink:
    I have to say, I want more coaster info now. One of those looks like an Intamin, maybe a rocket and that one up front is that a new EuroFighter? Oooooohhh.

      FYI...Guangzhou... is actually pronounced "guanjo". So you all can impress the chinese. It's an idiosyncracy... just like Worcester is pronounced "wustah". Who came up with these pronounciations???

            Lol There are some of us in New England who pronounce our Rs...it'd be "Woos-ter". You know many of those who'd call it "Wustah" also consider Lawrence Mass to be a state so...lol.

              True, England has quite a few of those (Leicester anyone?), but what about all those small towns in the American Midwest and the South that are named after well-known cities on other continents but pronounced completely differently? There's a Cairo in Oklahoma that's pronounced "Kay-ro", an Athens, Kentucky that becomes "Ay-thens", Versailles Kentucky is "Vur-sayles" and Madrid, Iowa is "MAD-rid". I mean, honestly.

              But I digress. "Happy World" is indeed as Asian as a plate of slippery noodles. I'm curious as to how the Chinese will actually pronounce it though?

                Hmmmm I seemed to quadruple-post that and now all but one are gone. Er anyway, moderators, this post is redundant now.
